answer text <p>The Appraisal of Sustainability that accompanies the Airports National Policy Statement (NPS) provides a strategic level assessment of the potential social, economic, and environmental impacts of expansion, including on noise. The Appraisal of Sustainability makes it clear that for the purposes of this strategic level assessment, it would not be suitable to produce noise contours and therefore estimate numbers of people affected below 54dB LAeq, 16 hour for the daytime or 48 dB LAeq, 8 hours for the night time. This is because variability in aircraft position in the air at these greater distances from the airport, and airport noise being closer to background noise levels, result in a lower level of certainty.</p><p> </p><p>The Airports NPS sets out specific mitigations for aircraft noise that the Government expects to see delivered. These include the applicant putting forward plans for a noise envelope which is tailored to local priorities and includes noise performance targets. The applicant will also need to develop plans for a runway alternation scheme that provides communities affected with predictable periods of respite. The Government also expects a ban on scheduled night flights for a period of six and a half hours.</p><p> </p><p>These supporting measures will be finalised through the planning process and subject to public consultation. These will then be considered by the Planning Inspectorate and the Secretary of State in determining an application for development consent.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

answer text <p>The Department has not made a formal assessment of the effectiveness of the rigorous enforcement and serious penalties for drink drivers; nor of the trends in the level of breath tests performed between 2011 and 2015. However, the Department has already introduced further measures to tackle drink drivers. Since 2015, repeat drink drivers must medically prove they are not alcohol dependent before getting their licence back, and the right to blood testing was removed for drivers who narrowly fail breathalyser tests. A £350,000 competition announced in June to develop a new mobile evidential breathalyser for the police has also been completed; winning entries are currently being assessed.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The number of flight crew licence applications received by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has grown by more than 25 per cent this year. The CAA has responded by recruiting and training more licensing officers, increasing overtime, and pre-screening applications to ensure all the required information has been received. The CAA is also working with key stakeholders to identify improvements which will help to simplify and speed up the application process for both commercial and private pilots.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The Government recognizes the importance of airports addressing the needs of all passengers, especially disabled passengers or those with reduced mobility. Addressing their needs better is an important part of the new Aviation Strategy, currently under development. The Government is also considering what more can be done to ensure that disabled passengers and those with reduced mobility have equal access to air travel and that their needs are met. The Government will consult on policy options to improve accessibility in a Green Paper, due to be published by the end of the year.</p><p> </p><p>These proposals will build on the work of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to improve transparency on this issue. The CAA publishes annual reports on airports’ performance on accessibility, based on a regulatory framework it introduced to the sector in 2014. This is used by the CAA to hold airports to account and to work closely with those that have not reached a good standard, so that necessary improvements are made.</p>

answer text <p>The Government’s long-term goal is the development and deployment of zero emission HGVs. Zero emission technologies are starting to emerge for the HGV sector, particularly for those vehicles with shorter range requirements. Hydrogen is likely to be a feasible zero emission fuel for large, long-haul HGVs.</p><p>In 2017, OLEV and Innovate UK awarded £20 million of grant funding to 20 projects through the Low Emissions Freight and Logistics Trial (LEFT), alongside £12m in private investment. The aim is to support industry-led trials of alternative propulsion technologies for commercial fleets in the UK, including electricity, hydrogen and gas. Since 2016, ultra-low emission vehicles heavier than 3.5 tonnes, including hydrogen HGVs, have been eligible for a grant of up to £20,000 per vehicle. The Department expects to make the first awards of this grant shortly.</p> more like this
